and just plain misunderstanding.
The movie is a somewhat unlikely campaign speech writer's meeting made in heaven that degenerates into he thought she said that he said.
I kind of liked it because I like both the leads Michael Keaton and Geena Davis, but I wouldn't really call this their finest hour.
stage direction: [While riding in back of pickup truck to get gasoline]
Julia: Is that cologne?
Kevin: Black Flag. You know, it's manly, and as you can see, not a roach in sight...
In this version of reality both parties are corrupt (wait a minute--are you sure it's fiction?). The wedge issue of immigration is one difference though, with the Democrat opposing the construction of a ditch between the US and Mexico, while the Republican spins it by dubbing it "The Friendship Ditch." Score one for Keaton. The only one who really believes in the speeches is Geena Davis' character. She is doing it because she wants to make the world a better place. Keaton is a former sit com writer and he is in it strictly for the money--and the laughs.
Christopher Reeve played Keaton's rival, a Network Television News Journalist who was Geena's former boyfriend, and now her fiancé. This movie was just a year before Reeve would have his tragic riding accident that would leave him paralyzed. There is one strange bit that became a running gag about her former boyfriend having a tattoo on his lip. If we ever find out what the tatto says, then I must have blinked.Read more ›

Such a cute movie. Good writing and Michael Keaton and Geena Davis have great chemistry. The political back drop doesn't completely hold up in the current political environment,... Read morePublished 13 months ago by I'm Not Skippy!
